Paint Panther can be used both indoors and outdoors. Always ensure suitable ventilation and apply to an appropriate test area to check compatibility.
Paint Panther Wood stripper gel does not contain Dichloromethane which is now a banned substance. Light scoring of the coated surface may enhance performance, however do not sand if any coats contain lead.
Our wood stripping gel contains corrosive substances and should only be used in a well ventilated area with protective clothing such as gloves and safety glasses or goggles.
When stripping wood floors, furniture and doors, paint a thick coat of wood stripper onto about a square meter at a time and leave for between 5 and 10 minutes before removing the gel. Removal of the wood stripping gel can be done with a scraper or with steel wool. If using steel wool then a good pair of gloves should be worn as wood strippers always contain aggressive stripping chemicals.
If some layers remain on the wooden surface then the process can be repeated as many times as is necessary. Once you feel that you are virtually back to the bare wood then the surface should be washed with white spirit. The one you use depends on the type of paint or varnish being removed but you won't do any harm to try several before you find the most effective one.
As with any corrosive substances such as paint remover or wood strippers, always read the instructions carefully prior to use for guidance and what to do if the product comes into contact with skin or eyes.
